Jeremy Tinder – Tinder Toys @ SDCC


Rotofugi has just announced their new Tinder Toys line, based on Chicago comic artist Jeremy Tinder’s engaging characters.  Even better news,  the first three Tinder Toys (Clem, Rabburt and Boyger) are slated for release at SDCC as white mostly unpainted editions in Roto’s booth (#4736), if all goes according to plan (they are in transit).  Standing between 3” and 3.5” tall, the figures were produced in collaboration with Squibbles Ink and were sculpted by Josh Sutton of ERA Sculpture.

We’re digging these and looking forward to seeing them in person.  With their strong sculpt work, the Tinder Toys feel like something fresh and new in the mini-figure genre, and that’s a great thing in our book.
